Description

THE NEW DEATH ON DEMAND MYSTERY!

Bookstore owner Annie Darling doesn’t just sell murder mysteries, she solves them.
  Business is slow for Annie Darling’s mystery bookstore, Death on Demand, as winter rolls into Broward’s Rock, South Carolina. To boost her sales, Annie decides to host a book signing for the island’s resident writer. During the signing, Gretchen Burkholt, a fellow volunteer at the local charity shop, Better Tomorrow, leaves Annie multiple voicemails about scandalous news she’s dying to share. So, when the event wraps up, Annie heads over to hear the latest scoop…only to find Gretchen dead on the floor, an axe by her side.   Annie, with the help of her husband, Max, uncovers a mysterious plot involving an overturned kayak, a stolen motorboat, a troubled love affair, and a reckless teenager. Annie will have to keep her eyes peeled and use every trick in the book to track down a cold-blooded killer in the dead of winter…
